Bio
Johnson Kam and Eddie Flores Jr. started the first L&L Drive-Inn in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1976. They later began franchising in Hawaii, and then expanded to California, changing their name to L&L Hawaiian Barbecue to better appeal to mainland customers. Today they offer franchises throughout the U.S. and also have locations in American Samoa, New Zealand and Japan. L&L Restaurants serve their take on traditional Hawaiian plate lunches, fusing Asian and American cuisine.
